We’ve been fishing around and Lexington is swimming in sushi. From trendy menus to laidback atmospheres, we’ve rounded up some top spots to score sushi.

🍣 Date night dining

Blue Sushi Sake Grill, 105 Summit at Fritz Farm

Blue Sushi is a great spot to take your date when you want to make it o-fish-al. Its trendy decor, picture-perfect patio, and extensive happy hour menu (even on the weekend) make for a perfect date night. (Pro tip: Vegan sushi is also available for veggie-lovers.)

🍣 Celebrate with sushi

Osaka, 3805 Dylan Pl.
Osaka is the perfect place to maki the moment special. Its Custom Boat option is great for big groups. No one will leave hungry.

🍣 Late-night option

Sushi Blue, 185 Pasadena Dr., Ste. 130

We think sushi tastes better late at night. Open until 2 a.m. from Monday through Saturday, Sushi Blue has a great night scene — we recommend the sake cocktails.

🍣 Tako-bout takeout

Sakura 12, 1015 Winchester Rd.

Go fish. Sakura 12’s drive-thru makes it easy to pick up affordable, tasty sushi on the go.

🍣 Bonus: branch out

School Sushi, 163 W. Short St

Or maybe you’re looking to get out of your sushi-rut and try other kinds of Japanese cuisine. In that case, you must dine at School Sushi. Its ramen is top-notch, and the menu includes street eats like takoyaki (octopus fried in batter), yakitori (skewered chicken), and okonomiyaki (savory pancake sprinkled with squid flakes).
